Re: Aft Bimini

I didn't know that but it would indicate Dick or Beth would be a good source of information.

Re: Aft Bimini

We are not sure where it was done, the aft bimini was already on when we bought the boat 4.5 years ago. The one rear pole seems to provide plenty of support. Every time we come and go from our house we do lower the radar to get under a low bridge and it rests on a arm on the bimini with out any prob...

Re: Aft Bimini

Mac,

I use a Mac (no pun intended) but with Firefox. I wrote to the Forum System Administrator and he upped the size limit which seemed to work. I will try Safari if I encounter problems in the future.

Re: Aft Bimini

We have a fairly low bridge to go under to get out of our neighborhood and we occasionally have to lower the bimini as a result. That is enough work that we had our bimini lowered about 5 inches. It looks fine and protects from the sun a little more. I would attach a picture but it keeps telling me ...

Re: Painting the Boat

I considered roll and tip at first. It was going to be quite a bit less than 32K, in fact about half. I am certainly not a paint expert but the research I did led me to the conclusion that a roll and tip job would not last nearly as long as a spray job with Alexseal or Awlgrip. There is a boat near ...

Re: Fuel Vent Gurgle?

Thanks Duane. Mine are Attwood pumps. They do not auto cycle.

Re: Fuel Vent Gurgle?

Duane,

I know that question was for Mac but I am curious, our bilge pumps only come on for high water (never has happened) or if we hit the manual switch to test. Yours actually cycle on by themselves?

Re: Painting the Boat

We did get the boat painted and decided to do everything on the exterior. I do mean everything. If it had gelcoat it got painted. The hull, the deck with new non-skid and paint and the flybridge inside and out as well as new bottom paint and Propspeed on the running gear. We looked at a bunch of pla...

Re: Fuel Vent Gurgle?

Mac,

We get a little gurgling from the head when the water level in the bowl is very low. If we leave the water level near the top of the narrow pipe at the bottom of the bowl, just where the bowl opens up, we don't get the gurgling. Not sure if this is your issue or not.

Thanks for sharing this. We could probably fill these pages up with all the mistakes that would up costing us money.

Re: 2006/2007 SS Ports

Dick, Thanks for the detailed explanation. A couple of years ago one of our SS port windows started leaking. I purchased enough replacement gasket material from Bomar to do all the SS port windows. We have not had any problem since. I am hoping we caught it early enough and will not have the more si...

Re: Florida Storage

John, I don't know what the humidity level is, I have never actually checked it. Janet is very alert to any humidity and any slight odor that could be from moisture and her alarm has never gone off. We have never seen any signs of excess moisture either. I am confident it is doing the job though. I ...

Re: Florida Storage

If there is access to a regular 120V 15 0f 20 amp outlet, they do make an adapter that plugs into the outlet and connects to your 30 amp power cord. It at least lets you bring the power in the normal way. We carry one but have never had to use it.
